Info: How to Clean AOS

A suggested procedure for cleaning the air/oil separator is outlines below:

Remove air/oil separator in accordance with the Service Manual.

Flush the air/oil separator with mineral spirits to remove oil.

Utilizing compressed air, remove mineral spirits from air/oil separator.

Place entire air/oil separator in container of Berryman’s Chem-Dip making sure unit is submerged, and all air pockets have been removed from internal surfaces of the air/oil separator.

Soak air/oil separator overnight for best results.

Remove the air/oil separator from the Berryman’s container and rinse with water.
Utilizing compressed air, remove any water from both inside and outside of the
air/oil separator.
Reinstall the air/oil separator
Check for oil leaks and verify proper operation.

Berryman's Container is just the bucket of Chem-Dip "Carb and Parts Cleaner"
The AOS WILL cause buildup on the bottom of it after age. This would help function and proper usage of the AOS.

Just thought I'd share with you guys, since a lot of people say use water....then Seafoam. This is much more effective. Buy some ChemDip and stick it in over night. Flush and it makes the oil easier to get out.
